The Daily Show Defends Jay Z Against FOX News

Posted by , Dec 18, 2014 at 01:57pm

Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams of The Daily Show lash out at FOX"s Sean Hannity for calling Jay Z a "crack dealer."


It's no secret that FOX News has a history of villainizing rappers for their lyrics. What with Cam'ron and Dame Dash's legendary appearance on "The O'Reily Factor," and Bill O'Reily later calling Beyoncé a "gangster rapper," the network has made their stance on hip-hop/R&B clear. Their latest offense came from host Sean Hannity, whose one-line description of Jay Z in a recent segment was "crack dealer." Thankfully, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams have stepped in and lambasted the network for their portrayal of the successful rapper/mogul.

As Jay Z was never convicted of any drug-related crime, the hosts turn the mirror on FOX employees, giving them titles that fit their various crimes and/or political views.
